Synopsis:

Award-winning director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) returns with the 2017 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winner The Salesman, a characteristically taut drama exploring how unexpected cracks can form in the foundations of a seemingly happy marriage. The future looks promising for amateur actors Emad and Rana as they prepare for opening night on their production of Arthur Miller’s ‘Death of a Salesman’. However, when the couple must leave their home and move into a new apartment, a case of mistaken identity sees a shocking and violent incident throw their lives into turmoil.

Critical reaction:
  • There is perhaps no director more adept at capturing the unfolding stories of ordinary people when the drama of their lives runs away with them ★★★★

    Wendy Ide, THE OBSERVER

  • A thought-provoking relationship drama that lingers long after the credits roll ★★★★
